4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can thanks to Boisebeerguy. Pours a dark brown with a caramel head. Not a thick head. Plenty of lacing. The aroma is amazing! I love the smell of a barrel aged stout. It has that boozy smell with a little coffee sweet molasses smell. Wow. Super mollasses slightly sweet chocolate with a nice liquor taste. Wonderful goodness in a can! Thick and oily with a great ending! I’m going to kiss this beer when I finish it.

Pours murky dark brown/almost black with a medium sized tan head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is bourbon, woody, vanilla, dark chocolate and some metallic. Flavors of roasted malts, woody, vanilla, caramel and bourbon
Wow, very good Imperial Stout. I still can’t get used to pouring a beer like this out of a can.

Nice beer! Poured from the can to calm my nerves after FSU’s overtime win vs Clemson. Nearly black in color, reddish brown head. Sweet up front, medium barrel notes, welcomed roast. Chocolate and molasses. Great stuff.

Flavors are similar, a good blend of malt and barrel, a little caramel, malt, molasses, toast, some charcoal, a little earthy, some earthy unprocessed chocolate. Full bodied but smooth at the same time.

It was surreal to watch it pour out of the can, because I’ve never seen anything so dark and syrupy in a can. Rich, slightly bitter, bitingly roasty, a little chocolate, very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. Pours out black topped with a tan/brown head. Nose is sweet milk chocolate, whisky, oak, and vanilla. Taste is as the nose with a faint barrel, chocolate, booze, vanilla, and more sweetness. I love the fact that this good BA imp stout is in a can. The simple silver can looks awsome aswell.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can courtesy of JohnGalt1, thanks! Very dark brown color, thick and viscous. Sizeable brown head after an aggresive pour, but it fades quickly. The aroma is good; a nice blend of oak, char, bourbon, and malt. Good balance of sweet and char. That same balance holds up well in the taste. Good malt bill compliments the roast and barrel notes, along with a very agreeable amount of chocolate. The huge plus here is the brewer giving me something I (almost) always want: A big, brawny RIS in a small format. Not overbearing that I need to slowly sip, but big enough to savor moderately. If it was available locally, I’d drink this all the time.

Out of a can that BuckeyeBoy graciously gave me. Deep black thick pour with a fat pillowy cocoa head. Rich chocolaty toffee aroma with some barrel goodness. Light roast flavors, smooth chocolate and caramel. Like a candy bar. Sipping some of the foamy head with each drink is like whipped cream, or the middle of a 3 musketeers. Thick creamy palate. Just barely enough bitterness at the end. Lingering bitter rast and chocolate. Lovely.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 12 ounce can. Luckily some hobo left a box of half finished beers near my hotel room, and this was in the box! Fuck yeah! Anyway, the nose is big barrel, chocolates and oak. The flavor is big sludgy fudge and chocolates, raisin, tannins, light vanilla and light barrel overall. Dry mostly. A light whiskey bite in the finish. Very good! Dude, Boise homeless are much better than Pittsburgh homeless who leave only dead hookers to clean up.
